10.7 Operation Controls

configure recognizes the following options to control how it operates.

--cache-file=file
Use and save the results of the tests in file instead of `./config.cache'. Set file to `/dev/null' to disable caching, for debugging configure.

--help
Print a summary of the options to configure, and exit.

--quiet
--silent
-q
Do not print messages saying which checks are being made.

--srcdir=dir
Look for the Bash source code in directory dir. Usually configure can determine that directory automatically.

--version
Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the configure script, and exit.

configure also accepts some other, not widely used, boilerplate options. `configure --help' prints the complete list.
